Adding Your First Domain

To add a domain name to your account, please send us a request or send an email to support@zicara.com

There are 3 types of domain names:
  1. Standard Domain - for example you just registered mywebsite.com and would like to host a website on it.
  2. Sub-Domain - if you already own have mywebsite.com hosted with us and want to add another website at products.mywebsite.com.
  3. Alias Domain - if you have bought another domain name, say mywebsite2.com and would like to 'point it' to mywebsite.com.
Send us a request and tell us the domain name and how you would like to add it.

What is a Sub-domain?

In the DNS hierarchy a sub-domain is any part of the URL that precedes the second-level domain name and the top-level domain name.  When looking at the domain "mywebsite.com", ".com" is the top-level domain and "mywebsite" is the second-level domain.

A sub-domain is anything beyond that second-level domain.  That means www.mywebsite.com describes the "www" subdomain of "mywebsite.com" (making "www" the third-level domain in the example).

Sub-domains aren't limited to just one level.  You can have a "photos" subdomain, making "photos.example.com", but you can also extend that with "www" to make "www.photos.mywebsite.com".

Note that Cloud Sites only automatically adds "www" when a site is created with a second-level domain name ("example.com"). If you want to use "www" with a subdomain we recommend creating the site with a fully-qualified domain name like "www.photos.mywebsite.com" so you can be sure that visitors can get to the site with the address you want them to use.
